My friend Danny Schur, an award-winning musician and playright, is rapidly preparing for the next stage of his Strike – The Musical about the Winnipeg General Strike and the riots and deportations that took place here in May of 1919. (A CBC Radio Concert Special will be recorded on May 15th, the 88th anniversary of the event.) The music is, well, striking—and powerful. O’Reilly’s Song is shown below.
